VIDEO: Scary thunderstorm hits Orlando bubble during games
The climate in Florida can be rather unpredictable, and NBA players, coaches and even media members got a taste of it on Monday.
A scary thunderstorm hit Orlando during the bubble games after it was mostly sunny throughout the day. Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports and Tania Ganguili of the Los Angeles Times captured some epic videos of the storm.
There is a wild thunderstorm happening outside the bubble arenas right now. Here’s my amateur attempt to capture it. pic.twitter.com/iRbtOWpDeu

However, those lightning strikes were pretty frightening. Hopefully, the weather clears and it won’t affect the games in Orlando. For what it’s worth, Rachel Nichols of ESPN had to move her interview with Carmelo Anthony during the day due to the thunderstorm.
So far, there have been zero COVID-19 tests at the NBA bubble since the initial rounds of tests. Adam Silver and Co. should be commended for the job they have done.
